    Richardson Extrapolation

    Can someone please tell me if the following looks correct:

    Use Richardson Extrapolation to get an approximation to f'(0) of degree 1 higher than f'(0)=(f(h)-f(0)/h)

    I've come up with

    (( 4f(h/2) - f(h) - 3f(0)) / h ) - (kh^2) / 2 for constant k

    That looks OK except you do not need the remainder term to answer the question.
